TULSI TALKS TOUGH: Gabbard Says She May ‘Boycott’ Next Debate, Claims DNC ‘Rigging Primary’

posted by Hannity Staff - 10.10.19

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard ripped the DNC’s ongoing primary process on social media Thursday; saying she may “boycott” next week’s debate as party officials are “rigging” the nomination for the 2020 election.

“The 2016 Democratic Primary election was rigged by the DNC and their partners in the corporate media against Bernie Sanders,” Gabbard said. “In this 2020 election, the DNC and corporate media are rigging the election again, but this time against the American people in the early voting states of Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada.”

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard slammed the Democrat National Committee Friday over their criteria regarding presidential debates; saying the DNC must “adjust” the process to “ensure transparency and fairness.”

“The Gabbard campaign is calling on the DNC to hold true to their promise and make adjustments to the process now to ensure transparency and fairness,” the campaign said in written statement. “Crucial decisions on debate qualifications that impact the right of the American people to have the opportunity to participate fully in the Democratic process should not be made in secret by party bosses.”

The DNC increased the requirements to attend next month’s Democrat debates in Houston, Texas; demanding all candidates poll above 2% in four approved surveys and raise funds from at least 130,000 different donors in 20 states.

The Gabbard campaign she has reached the donor requirement but has so far received 2% in just two approved polls.

“Ten candidates have solidified their spot on stage in Texas next month: former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.), South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Kamala Harris (Calif.), Sen. Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), Julián Castro (Texas) and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang,” reports the Hill.

The presidential hopefuls must reach the DNC requirements by August 28th.

GLOVES OFF: Rep. Tulsi Gabbard Says Kamala Harris ‘Needs to Be Held Accountable’ for Her Record

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.01.19

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard called-out Sen. Kamala Harris during Wednesday night’s Democratic debate; telling reporters the top-tier candidate needs to be “held accountable” for her record.

“People like Kamala Harris need to be held accountable for their record, not for something that she said or did 50 years ago. This is something that she did in her last job before she was elected as a U.S. Senator,” said Gabbard.

Sen. Harris has risen to second place in a series of recent polls, most notably in her home state of California.

“Sen. Kamala Harris of California has catapulted into a virtual tie with former Vice President Joe Biden in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination — and she’s made significant inroads with black voters — following her widely praised debate performance last week, a new national poll released Tuesday showed,” reports NBC News.

“The latest Quinnipiac University poll of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters showed Biden with 22 percent support and Harris with 20 percent — a double-digit jump for her since the university’s previous poll last month,” adds the survey.

President Trump weighed-in Tuesday on the 2020 Democratic presidential primary; saying the “Crew” looks “easier to debate” than his 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton.

“As most people are aware, according to the Polls, I won EVERY debate, including the three with Crooked Hillary Clinton, despite the fact that in the first debate, they modulated the sound on me, and got caught. This crew looks somewhat easier than Crooked, but you never know?” posted the Commander-in-Chief on social media.

GLOVES OFF: Tulsi Gabbard Says Kamala Harris’ ‘Entire Campaign is Based on a LIE’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.06.19

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard slammed Kamala Harris on social media Tuesday; saying her entire presidential campaign is “based on a lie.”

“Kamala’s entire campaign is based on a lie — that as AG of California, she was a fighter for the oppressed and for criminal justice reform. But her criminal justice record shows that her policies exemplified the worst aspects of our criminal justice system,” said Gabbard.

“Sen. Harris says she’s proud of her record as a prosecutor and that she’ll be a prosecutor president, but I’m deeply concerned about this record,” Gabbard said. “There are too many examples to cite but she put over 1,500 people in jail for marijuana violations and then laughed about it when she was asked if she ever smoked marijuana.”

“I think one of the things I’m most concerned with is Kamala Harris is not qualified to serve as commander-in-chief, and I can say this from a personal perspective as a soldier,” Gabbard added.

Harris’ Press Secretary pushed-back against Gabbard’s attacks; bizarrely suggesting the ‘Russian Propaganda Machine’ was behind her rise in popularity.

“Reporters writing their stories with eyes on the modern-day assignment desk of Twitter, read this: ‘The Russian propaganda machine that tried to influence the 2016 election is now promoting the presidential aspirations of a controversial Hawaii Democrat,’” tweeted Ian Sams.

“The Russian propaganda machine that tried to influence the 2016 U.S. election is now promoting the presidential aspirations of a controversial Hawaii Democrat who earlier this month declared her intention to run for president in 2020,” reported NBC News last February.

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard called-out Sen. Kamala Harris during Wednesday night’s Democratic debate; telling reporters the top-tier candidate needs to be “held accountable” for her record.

“People like Kamala Harris need to be held accountable for their record, not for something that she said or did 50 years ago. This is something that she did in her last job before she was elected as a U.S. Senator,” said Gabbard.
